by Simon Harrex Believe it or not, we’re less than forty days away from the newest NBA season. While the days of the Golden State Warriors’ epic collapse at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are now in the rear-view mirror, it’s never too early to start thinking ahead. Naturally, the Brooklyn Nets […]

Chris McCullough and Isaiah Whitehead team up for back-to-school giveaway

Chris McCullough Per-Game Statistics:24 G, 4 GS, 15.1 MIN, 4.7 PTS, 2.8 REB, 0.4 AST, 1.2 STL, 0.5 BLK, 0.6 TOV, .404 FG%, .382 3PT%, .478 FT%, .463 eFG%, .470 TS%, 12.2 PER It’s hard to grade Chris McCullough after rehabbing a major injury, but he deserves some sort of extra credit for just making it on the court. There’s a long way to go for the Syracuse product, but you can see the traces of a draft steal. A smooth jumper that needs just a little bit of refinement to be consistent, the speed and activity on defense to defend the pick-and-roll and make the extra rotation, the height and vertical to protect the rim and put an opposing player on the wrong end of a poster. The traces of a modern power forward are there, it’s up to Mr. McCullough to do the work. -Ryan Carbain

A couple of New York-born ballers will spend the day tomorrow giving back to the community, reports Ian Begley of ESPN. Chris McCullough, raised in the Bronx, and rookie Isaiah Whitehead, who, of course, is from Brooklyn, will give away backpacks and school supplies at MCU Park from 4-6PM on September 7th. Always good to see […]

WWE Champion Seth Rollins Trolls Brooklyn Nets: “they all kind of stink”

“There aren’t really any legendary Brooklyn Nets, right? They all… They all kind of stink.” WWE SummerSlam 2015 took place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn this past weekend, and World Heavyweight champion Seth Rollins was none too kind to his hosts, as shown in the Vine video above.

The Nets didn’t have a good offseason, but they had a necessary one

AP

Despite Mikhail Prokhorov’s overtures, the Brooklyn Nets got worse this offseason. The gulf from Deron Williams to Jarrett Jack is massive unless Jack takes an unprecedented leap forward in impact at 31 years old, and Jack’s new role as Brook Lopez’s chef & waiter will test a guard who averaged a career-high 3.1 turnovers per […]

How to kill a zombie

AP

This is kind of morbid, but it’s probably like someone about to be in a crash. You’re not thinking, ‘I’m gonna die,’ you’re just thinking, ‘What can I do to avoid this crash?’ And then the crash happens, and you have to deal with it. So that’s kind of how I look at the game. […]
